‘Degree Works’ training is Sept. 12-13
Training on “Degree Works,” a tool that helps monitor students’ progress toward completing their degrees in four years, is scheduled for later this month.
The training sessions for academic advisers, faculty and staff will be in Morris Library, rooms 752-754. The training is from 2 to 3 p.m., Sept. 12, and from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., Sept. 13.
Seating is limited, so participants are encouraged to register by Thursday, Sept. 8. Contact Kim Little at firstname.lastname@example.org or 453-7956.
“Degree Works” enables students who began classes in the fall of 2012 (or later) to monitor their progress toward degree completion. Students can also run scenarios based on current and future class options to estimate the time needed to earn their degree and to see the effect that changes have on their completion date.
The "audits" created by Degree Works are unofficial assessments of a student’s academic record and are not a replacement for the professional evaluation and guidance provided by academic advisers. However, this new tool allows advisers to quickly perform real-time degree audits as a starting point for evaluating a student’s progress and facilitating advisement.
